Shed Study

Obviously, I've been painting a number barns lately.  I'm working on technique.  In high school I absolutely loved the two years of drafting I took.  I still love line, structure, balance.  I use my palette knife to start these studies--almost "drawing" (or drafting) with it in a way, leaving some of those lines as a legacy in the finished piece.  This one isn't "finished" per se, but it is. :)

I love the barns studies you've been doing lately Julie! Love the original knife marks being left, it creates a neat excitement.
Happy Valentines to you!

Beautiful vignette. I love the harmony, and the tone of your board beneath. Exciting, dynamic rendering of a quiet subject.
